Handprint Santa Ornaments ❤



Some Ingredients and Craft Supplies Needed
All purpose Flour
Iodized Salt
Nukwarm Water
Vegetable Oil
Large Mixing Bowl
Straw (to make a hole to hang)
Measuring Cup (1 cup)
Paint (red, white & skin color)
Paint Brushes (shocking huh?)
Ribbon and I bought little bows
Black Sharpie Marker
Some use Modpodge I used -
Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating


STEP ONE:
Preheat your oven at 250 Degrees
Then Combine your ingredients in a large bowl

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup nukwarm water
knead the dough together with your hands 
until it is completely mixed. 



STEP TWO:
Section off your dough and roll into little balls.
I did a ball that was about 2 inches in thickness
then used a cylinder glass to roll the dough into 
little patties about 3/4 of an inch in thickness.


STEP THREE:
Press your childs hand into the dough.
Simple right? Hahahaha 
Brayden LOVED this part.
*sarcasm* Good Luck to you all. 


STEP FOUR:
Cut the outline of the handprints with a sharp knife and remove the extra dough. 
Then use the straw to make a hole that will be used to hang the ornament later on. 
(I did one footprint of Brayden's for a keep sake)


STEP FIVE:
Bake in the oven at 250 for 2 hours!
I then proceeded to let my dry out over night too.




PHASE TWO: HOW CRAFTY ARE YOU? 
Supplies I used


STEP SIX:
Paint White & let it dry. 
I did not paint the back side 
only the front and sides. 


STEP SEVEN:
Paint on details. 
The easiest way to do this is to go by the photos
and stay in line with the handprint.

STEP EIGHT:
Spray on Crystal Clear Acrylic 
IMPORTANT NOTE: Spray at least 12 inches away from 
the ornament itself. I lost a santa from the spray running my
paint. At least I learned my lesson and only lost one!

FINAL STEP:
Put your ribbon through the hole to hang ornaments.
I added bows to make mine a tad cuter. 
Not bad for my first Salt Dough Ornaments!




You can use a sharpie to add a cute note
 and the year that way you will always remember. 
Hope you all enjoyed reading and I'd love to see all your
Salt Dough Ornaments. Hashtag #themorrismanual ❤
